@hingehead,
When the Easybeats went to England they were produced by Shel Talmy who also produced records for The Who and The Kinks.

Concerning Talmy's production work for the who...

"The intentional feedback on the band's second single, "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere," caused Decca executives to send back the recording, thinking that they had received a faulty pressing"

don't you love it? Laughing .

@hingehead,
Ginger Baker played for Hawkwind but became famous playing with Cream and Blind Faith.

(I admit that none of these are off the top of my head factoids. It's just fun to seek out connections.)

@boomerang,
Majority of mine are top of the head, but I almost always check the facts because I am sometimes creative with facts (Apparently Glenn Miller was not Steve Miller's dad).

Eric Clapton's next gig after Blind Faith fizzled was as a player with the the John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band.

@hingehead,
Oh man! I was hoping you'd end with Eric Clapton because I could have used myself as a link.... oh well....

Okay.

John Lennon also played with the Beatles who often used photographer Robert Freeman. Robert Freeman's first major assignment was photographing John Coltrane.

(Yes! I did know about Robert Freeman!)

@boomerang,
Lord - then I would have had to find an obscure link to you! I'm good but not that good.

One of John Coltrane's most revered albums was 'My Favourite Things' which included, of course, an interpretation of Rodgers and Hammersteins song of the same name from the musical 'The Sound Of Music'.

Ooh, an old thread that died! Draws pentagram on ground and sacrifices goat.


The day Oscar Hammerstein II died (august 23, 1960) composer Julian Nott was born, best known for his soundtracks to the Wallace and Grommitt films from the Aardman Animation Studios. One of Aardman's early success was this treatment of a Nina Simone classic:

@panzade,
ooooh wait wait wait... I got one... .......

Eunice Kathleen Waymon (February 21, 1933 – April 21, 2003), better known by her stage name Nina Simone (/ˈniːnə sɨˈmoʊn/), was an American singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist widely associated with jazz music.

She was born the sixth child of a preacher's family in North Carolina...

which links into Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien[note 1] OBE (16 April 1939 – 2 March 1999), known professionally as Dusty Springfield, was a British pop singer whose career extended from the late 1950s to the 1990s. With her distinctive sensual sound, she was an important white soul singer, and at her peak was one of the most successful British female performers, with 18 singles in the Billboard Hot 100 from 1964 to 1970.[1]


Her solo career began in 1963 with the upbeat pop hit, "I Only Want To Be With You" (1963). Among the hits that followed were "Wishin' and Hopin'" (1964), "I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself" (1964), "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" (1966), and "Son of a Preacher Man"

ok... it's a stretch Rolling Eyes .... shoulda been daughter of a preacher man Wink

Nina Simone featured this song on her Broadway Ballads and Blues 1964 album



The Animals picked up the tempo, wrote a memorable opening organ-guitar part and released it in February 1965 where it rose to #4 in the US pop charts.

@panzade,
The Animals were an English music group of the 1960s formed in Newcastle upon Tyne during the early part of the decade, and later relocated to London. One of their most memorable songs was House Of The Rising Sun, also performed by Bob Dylan who also performed at Newcastle Upon Tyne in the '60's

@Izzie,
Bob Dylan is notorious for introducing the Beatles to marijuana at the start of a long mutual admiration.

In 2007, Talking to Rolling Stone magazine, Dylan talked freely about Harrison’s struggle to find his voice within the songwriting collective of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

"George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldn’t get stuck?" he asked.

Dylan highlighted the writing talents of Harrison, saying: "If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody." Source

The affection was mutual as this pisstake of Dylan shows...



Speaking against popular belief, the singer also denounced any rumours of competitiveness towards Lennon and McCartney, asserting, "They were fantastic singers. Lennon, to this day, it’s hard to find a better singer than Lennon was, or than McCartney was and still is."

Nodding his cap to McCartney in particular, Dylan concluded: "I’m in awe of McCartney. He’s about the only one that I am in awe of. He can do it all. And he’s never let up... He’s just so damn effortless."
